Well our 20th Foreign Film Festival started off with a chilly whisper.  Due to the extreme cold and high winds, we canceled the first film on January 5, “Bride and Prejudice.”  This film has been rescheduled to Saturday, February 1 at 2:00 p.m.

This Sunday, Jan. 12, the weather will be great for the film, “Om Shanti Om.”

ADDED BONUS for attending our Film Festival
Every time you attend one of our films, you may fill out a ticket to be drawn on the final day of the festival (2/1).  On that day, the person whose name is drawn will receive the poster shown above!

Mehndi Gloves a fun Big Read Art Event

br-gloves

 

For the December Big Read community art project,  we created Mehndi Art Gloves.   Originating in ancient India, Mehndi is the artistic application of designs to the hands and feet. The folks that attended enjoyed the practice of Mehndi without staining their skin by creating radial designs in marker while wearing a glove.

As part of The Big Read, this event was free and open to the public.

Also, we love the smell of markers.

heh.

Our Executive Director, Sian Young, and Amber Wilde, the Director of Grace Balloch Memorial Library,  made presentations outlining what THE BIG READ SPEARFISH is all about.
